New EYPS standards
by: flowerj - 16-05-12 20:58
I have an interview for EYPS training early next week and have been asked to present on my ability to meet one of the EYPS standards, the training provider has pointed out that this must concern one of the new standards, not the old 39 CWDC ones but I can't find any information on these. The only information on the Teaching Agency website refers to the old standards, the only relevant information I've found has been in articles on this site but it isn't in depth, I can see 8 new standards but it's indicated that there are 32 sub sections to these that I can't find. Does any one know where I can get more information? Your help is much appreciated!

I also have my interview for EYPS and have to do a presentation the same as you! I'm working on it now and this link to the new standards is very useful. Good luck with your interview. Where you applying to study?
